josh rosenthal’s review published on Letterboxd:
really fun! surprisingly a really good crowd-pleaser, and one of the most enjoyable times I’ve had seeing a movie this year. some of the unnecessary expository stuff scattered throughout makes it lose a bit of its traction, but the action sequences and resulting gore are inexplicably awesome. there are some great twists in this, and I adored the coloring and aesthetic of the cinematography. in my opinion, the concept is executed very well, and the way the plot progresses is a blast to witness. so very proud of Leigh Whannell for making it all the way from Saw to this. something I’m sure to revisit multiple times in the future.
